Editorial Reviews

?Carter (Southwest Missouri State University Library) has compiled an interesting and useful selected bibliography of 374 works of fiction that reflect attitudes of women writers toward war and peace from WW I through the Vietnam War and nuclear war. Each chapter covers the literature of a separate war and includes an introduction, sections on novels and short fiction, and a bibliography of literary criticism and sources. Each entry includes an evaluative synopsis of the cited novel or short story. Author, title, and subject indexes complete the volume. The unique focus of women's fictional perspectives on war and peace sets this bibliography apart from other works such as Lucy Dougall's War and Peace in Literature: Prose, Drama, and Poetry Which Illuminate the Problem of War (1982). Carter's selective bibliography will provide access to material useful to students of social activism, women, peace, and nonviolence. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries at all levels.?-Choice
